Growing up, twenty-seven-year-old entrepreneur Ellen Yin rarely saw female entrepreneurs – and even less so fellow women of color – represented on stages or in the media. That reality has fortunately been changing in recent years, with statistics showing that there are currently 12.3 million women-owned businesses in the US, an impressive 114% increase in female entrepreneurs compared to 20 years ago. Taking her place among the leading voices empowering other women to take up space and launch themselves to greater heights, Ellen Yin is the founder of Cubicle to CEO™, a community and business podcast supporting 50,000 female entrepreneurs globally.
“Women are traditionally underrepresented in media and business, so I created my own platform that highlights their voices, unique experiences, and important contributions,” explained the entrepreneur of the intention behind her award-winning Cubicle to CEO™ Podcast, which features weekly interviews with female founders and CEOs on how they built their success.
A rising personality and educator in the online business world, Ellen Yin is currently making a name for herself in the highly competitive marketing industry as a self-proclaimed “Marketing Minimalist”. This Asian American dreamer and go-getting entrepreneur believes that “building a business isn’t easy, but it should be simple,” solidifying a stellar reputation for her work by getting rave reviews from startups and Fortune 500 clients alike. Fueled by her drive to help other women step into their full potential as well, Ellen is taking center stage through her online membership and media platform, Cubicle to CEO™ .
Since its establishment in early 2019 as the digital media off-shoot of Ellen’s already thriving social media marketing agency – Ellen Yin Media – she founded back in 2018, Cubicle to CEO™ has served hundreds of female entrepreneurs. The online membership helps service providers, coaches, and creatives with small audiences reach their first $10,000 revenue month. By helping women gain more economic power, Ellen is also helping women take up more space and make a greater impact on the world through their businesses. “Our company’s mission is to help 500 women reach this major income milestone,” Ellen Yin said, a goal they’ve already helped dozens of students achieve.
Unlike other online programs, Cubicle to CEO shows students how to work smarter by scaling a simple, effective marketing system instead of trying to pursue multiple marketing strategies and show up everywhere online. This guiding philosophy helped Ellen create the Consistent Clients Cashflow System, her signature framework that delivers consistent results for her members.
“Our students find our minimalist approach to marketing refreshing because they finally feel that they can stop running on the content hamster wheel and obsessing over algorithm changes,” said Ellen.
Cubicle to CEO™ would not have grown so quickly had it not been for its founder’s incredible passion, determination, and financial transparency. For over two years, Ellen Yin has publicly disclosed her business income, profits, and expenses, effectively increasing her company’s visibility while smashing the glass ceiling and paving the path for other women to accomplish similar goals. By candidly talking about her own finances, she hopes to equip more female leaders, and especially other women of color like herself, with the resources and knowledge they need to succeed as entrepreneurs.
“Studies show only 2% of female founders have broken the one million dollar revenue mark. Having done it myself, I believe it is my responsibility to share what I have learned so that other women know that it is possible for them to achieve great things,” shared the visionary.
With Ellen Yin’s long list of achievements over the years, she serves as an inspiration to women everywhere. As she stands firmly at the forefront of Cubicle to CEO, she continues to take up space and empower other women to do the same.
